The Bozeman Symphony Orchestra’s 2022/23 concert season continues October 29 and 30 for “Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony + Bartok”. Join Music Director Norman Huynh and the Bozeman Symphony Orchestra for the evocative second performance of their 55th anniversary season.
‘“Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony contains lush melodies and is full of emotional outbursts. On the flip side, he creates a musical atmosphere for us to reflect on our deepest feelings,’ says Huynh. “Most of us know Tchaikovsky through his ballets like the Nutcracker and Swan Lake. Through his symphonies, he is able to draw us into his personal world—one that was filled with doubt, dark thoughts, and the grappling of fate. In the end, he shows that the light of the human spirit will always triumph over our darkest emotions.”
Also on the program is Bartok’s Piano Concerto No. 3 in E Major, featuring pianist Michael Sheppard. Known as “a virtuosic soloist possessed of power, sensitivity, earthiness, and humor” (Whitney Smith, Indianapolis Star) with the “power to make an audience sit up and pay attention...thought-provoking for performers and listeners alike” (James Manheim, All Music Guide), Sheppard has performed solo recitals and concertos around the world and, across the USA, including several solo Weill (Carnegie) Hall recitals and a solo Kennedy Center debut. Sheppard is a native of Philadelphia and resides in Baltimore, where he works at both the Peabody Conservatory and the Baltimore School for the Arts, sharing his love and understanding of music and the artistic process with future generations.
Performances will be held in person on Saturday, October 29 at 7:30 PM and Sunday, October 30 at 2:30 PM, at the Willson Auditorium (404 West Main Street) in downtown Bozeman. These performances would not be possible without strong community support and sponsorship. Bozeman Symphony wishes to thank Gary and Margaret Kachadurian and Donald B. Gimbel for sponsoring this performance, as well as our Season Sponsors, Stephen Schachman and Ritva Porter.
